I have a mental list of all the things I want to see and do before we retire to CA and leave the east coast. Right up near the top has been a trip to Walt Disney World. I've only been once. That was in 1984 when we traveled with our boys from CA for a trip through the southeast. I've wanted to go back ever since.
My chance is coming this Friday. DH will be celebrating his 60th birthday on November 5th. I suggested we go to WDW to celebrate. He agreed. What he doesn't know is that our oldest DS, DIL, and DGDs are going to join us. They will be flying in from CA. Unfortunately, youngest DS can't get away due to finances and job committments. I've kept DH totally out of the loop for planning this trip. He doesn't know anything except when we are leaving and how long we are staying. There have been a zillion phone calls and e-mails between my DIL and me as we put all the pieces together. We've even ordered a birthday cake to be brought to the restaurant for DHs big day.
I think I've become something of a WDW expert through this experience. My personal reccommendation for anyone planning a trip to WDW is to invest in a great book called, The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World by Bob Sehlinger. He also has a website called touringplans.com. Another great site with lots of tips is http://allearsnet.com
